Looks like the Great Blue Herons we have here - https://pixabay.com/photos/great-blue-heron-nature-bird-744257/

You have to be really careful releasing them from a beaver snare. That beak is wicked.

Great Blue, be careful spooking them at close range they tend to crap as they go.

Definitely an Oh No bird..Three foot legs, four foot testicles. Yells "Oh No" every time it comes in for a landing.

Great Blues are in FLA.

There are several other species of heron there as well but this pic looks like so many have guessed.
